PROFESSOR MORRISON'S LOLLIPOP - 'You Got The Love'/'Oo-Poo-Pah Susie (London HL 10254) 1968
I've been going through a bit of a bubblegum phaze recently and even offered a couple of free bubblegum comps via my blog a few months ago. All copies were taken. Anyway one of my favourites is a song by ex Coachmen musicians who signed with White Whale and had a name change to Professor Morrison's Lollipop.
A crazy name then, and one that won't win any prizes in a 'best group names of all time' competition...but who cares? I certainly don't. The picture sleeve highlighted is my obscure Italian release of the single coupled with another bouncy, repetitive smash called 'Oo-Poo-Pah Susie'.
Take a look at the 'way out' image in particular the beefy guy on the end who looks like a long haired Uncle Fester. These cat's rock.
Professor Morrison's Lollipop appeared on Dick Clark's 'It's Happening' show, first airing on 2nd October 1968. I hope this bubblegum action turns up on YouTube one day.
Professor Morrison's Lollipop 'You Got The Love' 45 on White Whale is always on ebay at a low price and is a good place to start your bubblegum collection.
